    Default Osho (Guru of the Bhagwan)

    I read a couple of pieces of this very interesting person. He is in the top 10 most wise men of india ever lived.
    A professor, a thinker, a rebel, a spiritual leader.

    I relate a lot to what he writes though he's a bit more heavy. I'm guessing ILI-Ni. What do you guys think?

    I especially like this page of him: http://www.osho.com/read/osho/vision...uous-rebellion

    I've seen EIE and IEI for him, I've read a couple of books. Undeniable Ni ego, but I wouldn't type him ILI...

    definitely intuitive, probably extrovert

    I'm guessing ENTj or ENFj

    he did MANY years of meditation though which tends to strengthen Ni in all types
    so it's possible that his natural personality is not Ni ego at all

    He seems closer to a Ni-IxI than an xIE. I'm not familiar with his works to any extent, however, browsing a couple of videos of him he seems very languid and spaced out, like he couldn't hurry anywhere if his life depended on it. I'd go with IEI-Ni sp/sx from the videos.

    There is some speculation that he had an addiction to nitrous oxide and that might account for the "spaced out" comportment. He would apparently huff it prior to public speaking engagements in order to give off an aura of bliss lol. IEI isn't a bad typing either fwiw.

    Beta indeed, always against the grain. Se HA > Se Suggestive (the latter would be Gandhi & Buddha). Somewhere around e7... what about 7w8? Self-pres dominant or supporting for sure - ashram, body talk, meditation techniques et cetera. Upset the public with his uncouth approach to intimacy, sx blind spot? As an sx-dom myself I always thought his teachings were `sterile´, not talking about becoming one but defining individual roles first while most sx-ish (often tantric) advice points to surrender, complete obliteration of self, conveyed intensely. Meanwhile, Osho...talks...like...thisss
    Nitrous oxide causes a 10 - 60 second euphoric high (spaced out: not so much, dream-like in some cases) but doesn't last longer, causing a paralyzing headache or a mild feel-good state at most. But maybe his beard was hiding some special device, we'll never know

    watched a pbs program about him. iei. if not, sei. fe creative is obvious; ni lead and beta most likely.

    i see ma anand sheela as eie. lol. she actually ran the rajneeshpuram settlement in wasco co. Oregon while 'osho' spent years not speaking or apparently even revealing his "teachings." meanwhile he wandered around smiling serenely as everyone did everything for him and gave him all their money.

    i remember looking through a book by osho and thought he was beta nf from that.

    also he was able to evade the fallout from rajneeshpuram quite well (ni really helps).

    Ni/Fe and I love him even if I don't agree with a lot of what he says. I have a couple books and the Osho Tarot.

    , cpig says I always sound high (he is not the only one) and a lot of people think I look high or am high when I am not. I think some people naturally have a "spaced out" look even when completely tuned in. Sometimes people say I look blissful too even when I am not. It's the aura or something.

    They would not want to see me when I am angry.

    lead for sure.

    I used to think he was IEI-Ni, but I used to think the same for Nietzsche, whom I now type as ILI-Ni after all.

    So, I could definitely warm up to typing Osho as ILI-Ni.

     
    He seems more like an ILI-Ni to me in the videos (note: likely lack of Creative , Cold-blooded Communicate style), while some of what I have read seemed more like Ni lead with Fi infusions, so to speak. Which I interpreted as NF, but this could just be his Fi HA peaking through. I saw the same thing in "Thus Spoke Zarathustra", and that too quickly made me conclude Nietzsche was IEI back then.

    The HA can influence someone's work/areas of interest quite a lot, especially if they are Inert subtype...
    So, it is easy sometimes to confuse someone's HA for a stronger function of theirs, at least initially.

    There is far too much talk by Osho about uninhibited love and self-expression for him to be ILI. He is all about the emotions.

    Similarly with Nietzsche: highly dramatic, poetic, and all about free expression.

    Osho strikes me as using both Fi (relationship/love talk galore) and Fe ("rejoice!", "celebrate, don't analyze!"), all while rejecting commonly accepted business logic. Ti HA also sneaks in there. So IEI-Ni is probable.

    Some illustrations:

    Celebration is my attitude, unconditional to what life brings.

    All your knowledge is dust. Knowing is your purity, knowledge is dust.

    Life is not logic, life is not philosophy. Life is a dance, a song, a celebration! It is more like love and less like logic.

    Take it easy, and remember “Easy is Right.”

    If you are sad you are wrong; if you are joyful you are right.

    Life has no meaning. Rejoice! It has no meaning. Dance, sing, enjoy! It has no meaning. You need not be serious. It is a cosmic joke.

    I’ll never make any resolutions. Drop all resolutions! Let life be a natural spontaneity. The only golden rule is that there are no golden rules.

    I resolve never to make any resolutions because all resolutions are restrictions for the future. All resolutions are imprisonments.

    Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.

    Your honesty, Your love, Your compassion should come from your inner being, not from teachings and scriptures.

    Never obey anyone’s command unless it is coming from within you also.

    It is better to be ignorant; at least the ignorance is yours. It is authentic, it is real, sincere and honest!

    A borrowed truth is the greatest lie in the world. Truth can only be true when it is based on your own experience, utterly your own experience.
